It’s natural to have lots of questions when you’re letting a stranger take care of your cat These are just some of the common questions that we provide answers for below. If you still have something you’re unsure about after going through the list, please don’t hesitate to get in touch and We will get back to you ASAP.
HOW OFTEN WILL YOU VISIT & WHEN?
We will arrange an initial visit to meet you and your cat(s). We can discuss the number of daily visits and timings so that we can quickly get a routine established with your cat. We can visit once or twice daily depending on your cat needs. We do have clients we visit 3 times a day. Some cats don’t like much of a fuss, and will only need to be fed and checked, whereas other cats crave more attention, and we are quite prepared to dedicate more time to play, cuddling and socializing.
At that initial meeting, we complete our Cat Care Plan to ensure we fully understand your cats dietary & medication needs. We also like to know if they have any loves dislikes and idiosyncrasies.
HOW MANY CATS IN ONE HOME WILL YOU CAT SIT FOR?
We will after one to any number of cats in one hone.. just remember proper care for each cat takes time and we do charge a supplement for more than 2 cats. This is because we need to spend more time with each cat and usually more domestic duties to undertake, litters, bowl cleaning, hoovering etc. We provide breeder support services and if you are interested please contact us for a tailored quote.
CAN YOU CARE FOR MY CAT WHO HAS A MEDICAL CONDITION?
Yes, we are quite happy to care for your cat providing he has no contagious infections. We will administer medication adhering to your written instructions.
